Last year, the Honda Ridgeline received numerous awards, such as Best Midsize Pickup from Car and Driver and Best Resale Value from Kelly Blue Book. Now, the celebrated truck is available right here in League City, at Honda of Clearlake.
The 2019 Honda Ridgeline
Everything is bigger here in Texas, so naturally, the Honda Ridgeline fits right in. The Crew-cab pickup, although midsized, packs big-time capability, versatility and sensibility.
For 2019, the Ridgeline is available in six trim levels: RT, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E and the Black Edition. Model year changes include a second USB port for RT, Sport and RTL models, along with a standard power-sliding rear window and power moonroof on RTL and RTL-T models.
Unlike a traditional, frame-based pickup truck, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is built on a lightweight unibody chassis. From there, the innovation continues with minimized wheel housings, which provide more bed space, and a lockable in-bed trunk. Plus, there’s an industry-first truck-bed audio system mounted in the bed walls.
Moving into the cabin, you’ll find plenty of space for up to five passengers, along with 60/40 flip-up rear seats for transporting cargo. Available leather upholstery and tri-zone climate control make the interior as comfortable as it is useful.
Although the 2019 Ridgeline isn't designed like a common pickup, it still has plenty of truck muscle. Honda-built Capability starts under the hood with a 3.5L V6 (280 hp, 262 lb.-ft.) mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel-efficient front-wheel drive comes standard; all-wheel drive is available.
Together, the powertrain helps the Ridgeline tow up to 5,000 lbs. when properly equipped.* That’s more than enough to haul the family toys to Galveston or anywhere else you choose to travel. Payload is impressive as well, coming in at 1,584 lbs.
As one might expect, the highly-inventive Honda Ridgeline comes stocked with the latest technology. The focal point is a large touchscreen media center with integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Everything pairs nicely with your smart device, too, thanks to HondaLink connectivity.
Perhaps one of the biggest announcements for the Ridgeline – and Honda in General – is the recent addition of the Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver assistance features. The bundle includes Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Keeping Assist System, Road Departure Mitigation and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Thanks in part to Honda Sensing, the Ridgeline was previously nominated as an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) top Safety Pick. The truck is expected to receive best-in-class safety ratings from both the IIHS and the NHTSA this year.**
